Convergent Dental Announces New Partnership with Patterson Dental
Strategic Alliance Expands Availability of Solea®
to Thousands of Dental Professionals Nationwide
Natick, MA (October 20, 2016) – Convergent Dental Inc., developer of Solea®, the industry-leading, computer-aided, CO2 all-tissue dental laser system, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Patterson Dental, a leading distributor of dental products, equipment, and technology in the US and Canada. Effective immediately, Patterson Dental will distribute Solea, the first and only CO2 dental laser cleared to cut hard, soft and osseous tissue across the US.
“We are tremendously excited about this partnership,” remarked Michael Cataldo, CEO of Convergent Dental. “Patterson’s representatives have earned a place as trusted advisors to thousands of dentists because of their commitment to a deep understanding of what is important to each customer and delivering the best solutions to meet those needs. This thoughtful approach to helping practices grow matches exactly with how we do business at Convergent Dental and is the most important aspect of this partnership.”
Solea has earned its reputation for delivering reliably anesthesia-free, blood-free, suture-free, and pain-free experiences because of the science behind it, the technology that enables it, and its simplicity in the hands of the dentists. With a single setting, dentists move back and forth between hard, soft, and osseous tissue by just changing pressure on the dental laser industry’s only variable speed foot pedal.
“Solea is revolutionizing the dental practice by dramatically increasing production while greatly improving the patient experience,” remarked Dave Misiak, President of Patterson Dental. “We truly believe in this groundbreaking technology and see it as a powerful complement to the other technologies that we have so successfully introduced to thousands of our customers.”
All dental professionals attending this year’s American Dental Association (ADA) Meeting are encouraged to visit Convergent Dental at booth #1814 and Patterson Dental at booth #3036 for a free demonstration of how Solea can improve their own clinical procedures and practice profitability.
